Today I sit down with one of my favorite guitar players from the Bay Area Mr Gary Pihl.

Gary has been playing professionally for almost his entire life.

I first saw Gary back around late 1979 when he was playing guitar in Sammy Hagar's band.

Gary immediately became one of my favorite players back then with his Gibson SG Special. I must have seen Gary play in Sammy's band 10 times in and around the Bay Area. I never missed Hagar live all the way up until he joined Van Halen.

After Sammy joined Van Halen Gary was asked by Tom Scholz to join Boston and he's been in the band since 1986.

Gary's story is fantastic and I think you guys are really gonna dig this episode.

So much great Bay Area love on this one.
